State Authorization, Licensure, and Disclosures

Students will need to fulfill additional requirements to become nurse practitioners. While the Master of Science in Nursing (Adult Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, Family Nurse Practitioner, and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner specializations) is not designed to fulfill licensure requirements in an individual state, the program may be used to partially fulfill licensure requirements. Professional credentials vary by state and include requirements outside of education, which may include exams, background checks, work experience, and more. Post University does not guarantee licensure. It is the responsibility of individual students to ensure that all requirements are met to obtain licensure. Post University does not speak on behalf of any licensing board or body but does assist students in understanding licensure requirements.
